Just because Friendster is nearing sunset…

…doesn’t mean I can’t see the sunlight just before it ends.

Recently, a news spread out like fire about Friendster putting a halt on all its previous users saying that it will soon undergo a major makeover. And just like that, everyone’s talking about the then famous social networking platform that started the web-based testimonials page, the virtual photo album, the online bulletin board, and of course, the popular “Who’s Viewed Me” application that will give you goosebumps once you see your crush peeking at your profile.

But that’s not just that. Apparently, browsing your old account and comparing it to the present will make you ecstatic.

Nothing much has changed. I still love ice creams but I love frozen yogurts better now. The haircut, I think I know better now but I can’t say that my hair looks much better today than before. For my skin, I have fairer skin before, what happened to me now? As for fashion, I can proudly say that I’ve grown enough to have my own style. But all of this, still have some room for improvements.

It’s funny and shameful to see what you were in the past. Yet it’s also inspiring to know that after all you’ve been through, the present you is already better than before. And friendster, thanks for giving us that. Thank you for making us realize that even though we might set aside some things, we would still go back and cherish those moments, if only given the time and opportunity to experience it once again. And for that Friendster, I am truly grateful.

Seeing friendster now gives me nothing but pure happiness. So I’m listing down some testimonials that caught not just my attention, but also my true perception about the world, through someone else’s point of view.
